God has a significant place and purpose for you.

Bethany’s Women’s Ministry is designed to help women flourish in every season of life and ministry. Because women need close relationships, support and encouragement to help them grow stronger and healthier in Christ, our ministries offer a variety of places to find these.

Table

 
 
 
Get to know the Women of Bethany! Table is a Multi-Generational Women’s Brunch designed to bridge the generational and social gaps of all the women of Bethany, and to create strong bonds between us as we walk through life together. Join us as we share food and get closer to each other!

Esther

 
 
Wednesdays
9/11-10/23
7:45pm-9pm
Meeting in Worship Center
The Old Testament book of Esther makes no reference to God, but the entire story bears the unmistakable imprint of His ways. Your faith will be strengthened as you see how God intervened to deliver His people from annihilation. God still masterfully orchestrates and weaves together every detail of our lives and this universe in jaw-dropping ways. Nothing and no one can thwart His plan!

Overcomer Bible Study

A study to help you establish your value and worth in Christ.

What do you allow to define you? As women we allow people in our lives and things of our past to “define” who we are. The Overcomer study will help each of us see that our identities are firmly rooted in God’s Truth. We’re getting together to watch the movie on August 27th too! If you’re interested in going together, the information is below. Then, We we will come together each Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. Beginning September 3rd in The Cave for a 5 week Bible study.
 
Please register with the link below if you would like to participate in the study!
 
 
Join us to watch the movie too! Marcus Theatres, in La Crosse, 7:25 p.m. Tuesday evening August 27th. You’ll need to buy your own ticket, and we recommend pre-purchasing, as Tuesday is cheap movie night and appears to be in one of the smaller theaters. Everyone is invited to “Girls Movie Night”!
 
 

Morning Equipping

Kickoff is September 10th!

Morning Equipping exits to equip women of all ages with the Word of God. Through time, you will get to know ladies in all different stages of life as you study God’s Word, worship, and pray together.
 
We meet on Tuesday mornings from 9-11 a.m. We initially gather together as a large group to worship and pray, then we break into our smaller groups for digging deeper into the Word. In these small groups, we have more intimate discussions on our study, build relationships and pray for each other. We welcome women from the greater La Crosse community and offer Kid’s Edition (biblical teaching for preschool-aged children) so you don’t have to worry about childcare while you are at Morning Equipping.

God of Creation: A study of Genesis 1-11

See How God Reveals Himself Through Scripture
The opening chapters of Genesis teach us fundamental truths about God. We watch Him bring light after darkness, order after chaos, and rest after toil—all through the power of His Word.
Over 10 sessions of verse-by-verse study, dive into Genesis 1-11 by following three critical stages of understanding: comprehension, interpretation, and application. Revisit familiar stories and historical figures, challenge your basic knowledge, and discover deeper meanings in the text. As God reveals Himself through Scripture, we can only begin to understand ourselves when we first glimpse the character, attributes, and promises of our Creator.

Ephesians – The Church: Rooted in Love, Walking in Power – In and Out Workbook

Chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world, targeted by grace, sons of God united in a single family, inheritors, holy, redeemed, forgiven, raised from the dead and seated with Jesus Christ in the heavenlies! How can you not study Ephesians!? Before Paul even hints at how believers should live, he lays a rock-solid foundation: who we are in Christ! If you think you’re just a cog in a machine, if you don’t know your true identity, then this study is for you. Praise God for what He planned in eternity past and is waiting to reveal to you now . . . through the study of His Word. Learn who and what you are in Christ and you’ll want to walk God’s ways the rest of your life!

Facing Fear, Finding Faith – Living Free Ministries

Fear, worry, and anxiety are hallmarks of the human experience, yet our loving Father longs for us to be filled with His peace. God has given us numerous commands to “fear not” in the Bible and He has invited us to “cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7).
But sometimes, fear can seem unescapable. Like a boa constrictor, it strikes and then coils itself around us, suffocating the very life out of our being. How do we escape the bondage of fear and walk in faith?
This study is designed to introduce you to a biblical model for overcoming fear while increasing your faith. This model provides a practical, useful step-by-step process for moving beyond fear toward a trusting relationship with Jesus Christ.

Acts – Learning to study the Bible

Acts begins with Jesus’s charge to the Twelve Apostles to spread the Gospel throughout the world. Acts is chucked full of amazing examples of the power of our God. From stories we know by heart to the the verses that lace the Bible together. Come learn to read, study, and understand what Acts has to offer.
